Calamansi Lime

    7 responses

Gloria starts with ...
I am interested getting a Calamansi Lime tree. It is about 2cm in diameter, round shape, thin skin. I am not sure if it is the same as these: http://www.daleysfruit.com.au/fruit%20pages/kumquat.htm as I always see them in green (I guess because they are lime, not kumquat). Do you know if it is available in Perth? If so, where can I get it?

My Filipino mum and her friends think the calamondin kumquat is the same as a calamansi lime. It tastes the same to me anyway. I guess climate and the stage of ripeness when harvested affect the colouring. I use it like calamansi. I guess you should pick it while still mostly green for a stronger lime flavour?

calamansi and calamundine limes are 1 , the only difference is calamundine are grafted on some sort of rootstock = bigger fruits = more juices.

There are 2 types of Calamondin(Calamansi) available, the varigated(sometimes called vari. kumquat) and the normal green foliage type. Should be available as grafted trees, and is fairly common as a garden ornamental. Fruit are about 20cent size, ripening like mini mandarins, slightly sour. They are not Fortunella Kumquats, which are the other common ornamental Citrus, but with sweeter fruit. Seeds will probably take at least 6 years to fruit, more in a cool climate. Cuttings, or a grafted tree will be much faster.
